Take a cruise with a difference

This week sees the arrival into Sydney of Cunard's flagship, Queen Mary 2, as she continues her inaugural Round-Australia journey. In two weeks' time we also see her little sister, Queen Elizabeth, overnight in Sydney on her Round-World journey. These two ships remind us of the classic era of cruising that our local ships have evolved from, and show us that some traditions in cruising are still extremely popular across all generations. Tomorrow we look forward to rolling out the red carpet welcoming our QM2 guests to a reception in our Brisbane office.

In other news, our local cruiselines have only several weeks left of their "Sail" period, so if you're planning on a cruise this year, don't delay or you will pay more later in the year!

Queen Mary 2 & Queen Victoria
 

Two Queens visiting in 2013!

Cunard Line is proud to announce the 2013 World Voyage programme once again offering a pinnacle luxury cruise vacation. On 10 January 2013 Queen Victoria and flagship Queen Mary 2 will set sail from Southampton, England on epic voyages around the globe with the ships together visiting 55 unique ports of call in 28 countries.

The company offers itineraries calling on legendary ports, featuring overnights in Sydney, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Dubai on Queen Victoria; and overnights in Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai and a two-night overnight in Cape Town on Queen Mary 2.

Queen Victoria World Voyage

Queen Victoria makes a triumphant return to the World Voyage in 2013 featuring convenient departures from New York, Ft. Lauderdale and San Francisco. Her 105-day voyage will span 34 exotic ports in 23 countries, crossing three of the earth's oceans, both tropics and the equator, and passing through two of the world's most impressive engineering feats - the Panama and Suez Canals.

From San Francisco, the ship sails to the South Pacific and New Zealand before arriving for an overnight stay in Sydney, Australia. Next, Queen Victoria heads north for an overnight call in Hong Kong via the Great Barrier Reef, Darwin, Bali, Manila and another overnight in the vibrant Chinese city of Shanghai. Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Sri Lanka and India line the route to Oman before a fourth overnight call, this time in Dubai. Queen Victoria begins the final leg of her epic voyage with visits to Jordan and Egypt before transiting the Suez Canal, followed by the romance of European calls in Rome and Lisbon before completing her voyage in Southampton.

In total, Queen Victoria will visit nine ports for the first time: Falmouth in Jamaica, Bay of Islands in New Zealand, Brisbane, the Whitsundays, Darwin, Bali, Manila, Colombo, Sri Lanka and Sokhna, Egypt.

Fares for the full 105-day World Voyage start from $19,995 per person, based on double occupancy.

Segment Voyages capture the essence of Queen Victoria's World Voyage in a shorter time frame, ranging from 16 to 23 days, and include New York to San Francisco (16 days), San Francisco to Sydney (20 days), Sydney to Hong Kong (23 days), Hong Kong to Dubai (20 days) and Dubai to Southampton (18 days). Guests can enjoy great value by combining two or more consecutive segments to create adventurous Liner Voyages. Segment fares start from $3,235 per person, based on double occupancy.

Queen Mary 2 World Voyage

Now a seasoned World Voyage liner, Queen Mary 2 will begin her sixth World Voyage in Southampton, and head east, across four continents and 34 ports in 18 countries. Her 106-day voyage will include six maiden calls to Abu Dhabi, UAE; Colombo, Sri Lanka; Langkawi, Malaysia; Ko Samui, Thailand; Christchurch, New Zealand and Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Queen Mary 2 sails first to an overnight stay in Dubai that includes en route calls to Spain, Greece and Egypt, as well as a transit of the Suez Canal. After a maiden call to Abu Dhabi, she will sail to India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam before gliding into Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong for an overnight stay. After that, Queen Mary 2 is off to Shanghai for another overnight stay and then to Australia's Gold Coast on the way to Sydney. From here, she will offer a 12-day loop of New Zealand, including a maiden call in Christchurch in addition to visiting Wellington, Auckland and the beautiful Bay of Islands. After a second visit to Sydney, Queen Mary 2 will turn her bow westward, heading for Cape Town in South Africa by way of Australia's south and west coasts, Mauritius, Durban and a maiden call to Port Elizabeth. After two nights in Cape Town, this epic voyage continues to explore the African continent with a call in Namibia before returning to Europe for calls in the Atlantic Isles and Spain and journey's end in Southampton.

Segment Voyages aboard Queen Mary 2 range from 12 to 22 days and include Southampton to Dubai (18 days), Dubai to Hong Kong (20 days), Hong Kong to Sydney (18 days), roundtrip from Sydney (12 days), Sydney to Cape Town (22 days) and Cape Town to Southampton (16 days). Segment fares start from $2,575 per person, based on double occupancy.

Enhanced Benefits Programme

Guests who book their World Voyage adventure before 29 February 2012 can enjoy savings of up to 10% off Early Booking Fares (EBF). This discount will be applicable to Full World, Liner and Segment Voyages. Guests booking by this date will also receive an On Board Credit of up to $3,000 per stateroom - on Full World and Liner Voyages.

In addition to the 10% Bonus Early Booking discounts, World Club members will receive additional savings of up to $2000 per person and - NEW for 2013 - these savings will now combine with most fares outside of final payment for which the past guest qualifies - giving past guests the peace of mind that booking early will remain advantageous.

Call us to book either of the Cunard World Cruises or Sectors on 1800 121 187.
